Default Fraud: Title: Most Windows 7 PCs max out memory [InfoWorld]

It seems the InfoWorld reporter Randall C. Kennedy, in his article about Windows 7 memory, was “misrepresenting himself to other media organizations as Craig Barth, CTO of Devil Mountain Software”

“There is no Craig Barth, and Kennedy has stated that this fabrication was a misguided effort to separate himself (or more accurately, his InfoWorld blogger persona) from his Devil Mountain Software business.”


“Due to a serious breach of trust, Randall C. Kennedy will no longer be writing for InfoWorld”

An unfortunate ending | Adventures in IT - InfoWorld

Some of us saw this coming from a mile away. A few editors and myself were trying to replicate the article's findings and coming up with snake eyes, so something had to be wrong there...

Yeah if you looked through the original thread most of us who actually use Windows 7 thought the article was crap.
